2. An epigrammatic poet, who had a place in the Garland
There are two of his epigrams in the Greek Anthology, one of which is on the destruction of Corinth, which took place in B. C. 146.
He must therefore have lived some time within the seventy or eighty years preceding the time of Meleager, and probably soon after the taking of Corinth.
Polystratus of Letopolis probably not the same
A certain Polystratus, of Letopolis in Egypt, is mentioned by Stephanus Byzantinus (s. v. Λητοῦς πόλις
), but there is nothing to indicate whether he was the same person as the epigrammatist.
